God is beautiful and the author of all beauty.
When I create a painting, I strive to give a glimpse into that beauty, even if it is a meager attempt. I may see a gray green cactus but I desire to paint it from a different perspective and show a glimpse of the depth of God’s beauty which is all around us. I believe there are colors in our world that we do not perceive because they are beyond the ability of our eyes to comprehend. I’d like my paintings to give a small glimpse into that world of color and beauty.
The human heart is mysterious and sometimes can be difficult to penetrate or understand. Art speaks to the heart in a way that could open a crack into the real person existing there.
I believe the arts – in my case paintings – are much more powerful than we realize. It is one of those hidden yet extremely powerful realms that exist in the creation of God and speak to us in deep ways.
